Turkish Parliament Speaker Cemil Cicek said on Wednesday he would call on Turkish lawmakers to gather on August 14 for an extraordinary session to discuss the latest circumstances connected with terrorism, Syria and Iraq.
124 lawmakers from the main opposition Republican People's Party had made an application on August 6 for an extraordinary session in the parliament on August 14.
"We evaluated the issue under the Constitution and the regulations. An announcement should be made in accordance with the procedures and principles, and we are going to announce today that the parliamentarians are invited to gather for an extraordinary session on August 14," Cicek told reporters at the Turkish parliament.
The CHP's move came after attack on military outpost in the southeastern province of Hakkari at the weekend by PKK on late Saturday, August 4. During the attack six Turkish soldiers and two village guards were killed. 14 militants were also killed in the clashes with security forces in the region.
The bloody PKK attack also came amongst Turkish concerns over emerging Kurdish control over the cities of northern Syria along the Turkish border after the withdrawal of Syrian Army from these overwhelmingly Kurdish areas to fight opposition groups in Aleppo.
